EA Book 1 Now in Paperback
Explorer Academy, Book One: The Nebula Secret launches today in paperback. I've seen the books, and they are just as beautiful, the illustrations just as vibrant, as the hard cover version.
I'm especially thrilled that National Geographic chose to release the pb of EA 1 during the summer. That doesn't often happen (in publishing, spring and fall are the two big release seasons). When I was growing up in Seattle, no matter where we went or what we did over the summer as a family, I always had a book in my hand - in the car, at the beach, or babysitting the neighbor kids. Even now, I read far more books from June to September than I do during the entire rest of the year. There's nothing more relaxing after a busy day then settling into a chaise lounge on our back deck in the evening. Our deck overlooks a peaceful little forest and creek filled with birds, bunnies, squirrels, raccoons, and the occasional coyote or two. I leave all my electronic devices behind, as I take a moment to inhale the delicious smells wafting from a neighbor's barbecue, watch the hummingbirds flit to our fuchsias, and feel the dappled sunlight warm my face. Then, it's time to read. This, to me, is heaven
May you, too, find your perfect summer reading spot, along with great stories to fascinate, awe, and inspire you! If your young reader happens to be diving into the pages of Explorer Academy this summer, I'd love to hear about it.
